Nudity ( . )( . )

Hello people.
I’ve seen few nude, kind of nude, almost nude and I’m pretty sure very nude art pieces around.
I’m still not aware, even tho I honestly tried to find out if complete nudity is allowed?
Now the reason to ask is that my girl is a photographer and she has some naked sessions and few more upcoming and all of that with a contract agreement between her and the models to distribute their pictures around the web.

So if complete nudity is allowed, do you think that it will be some kind of a good project to start sharing these sessions with the world, especially the NFT world? Is there future in that? Nudity is not just something that some people use to relax, it’s more than that and we all know it.

We/She could start with basic photos, gifs and eventually to make some short clips?
What is your attitude towards complete nudity in NFTs world?

NSFW work is weirdly allowed on Rarible. I say weirdly because last time I checked, this website allows ages 13+.

I’m not sure what you mean by “complete nudity”. The way you are describing it in the end makes me think you’re referring that your girlfriend film pornography in the future. NSFW artwork is popular for obvious reasons.
As NFTs become more mainstream, general NSFW will be popular along with it as long as the platform allows it. Starting now would be good and I do see a future in it, if she is willing to do that.
As time goes on, it is hard to tell if NSFW will continue to be on this platform because of the allowed age to be on here.

Hi @makemorelove,

as long as it is artistic nude and not pornography, no problem for me. But I don’t want to see intercourses and other sexual activities because it’s not “art” but voyeurism.

If we want to be credible in the world of art, I think we musn’t miss the step by posting non-artistic NFT. You’ll say it’s subjective, and that’s true, but in my opinion, if you can’t show it to a child, it musn’t be minted. Simple artistic nudes without any sexual overtone is ok to me. I had a harsh discussions about that because someone minted a pornhub image and it was really tasteless.

Keep it classy or the whole boat will sink!

Hello, I create erotic animations and I am worried about displaying those items as well. But I guess if it is art everything should be accepted.
Btw. I saw on the voting page that there was a proposal to create a completely new category - the porn one. So it looks there is a possible future to post more explicit content than just full nudity.

and this is the most explicit piece I saw on Rarible, try to compere with your art :smiley:

If they do that then the site is most likely going to have to be 18+.
Not sure how they can get around letting 13+ on here anymore. I don’t want the site taken down over them not putting a warning label before entering the website.

This topic goes on and on, I’ve already expressed my opinion elsewhere, but…
@CoconutEspresso maybe if they create the explicit session that could be restricted to 18+ while the site could be left 13+ ? Don’t know if that is possible.

However…
@Trimaliny

I think stuff like this is not just “porn”, and it can be considered “art” or not depending on the observer. So maybe restricting this kind of NFT without just eliminate them could be the right think to do

Feels :joy:
I still agree with you on this…
But I make you a question: if someone realizes an anatomically unbelievably perfect piece, with balanced colors and stuff, even if it is somehow “voyeristic” would you still blame it? I mean… taking a screenshot on pornhub il childish and stupid, but if you master anatomy I’ll appreciate your work no matter the subject.
Maybe I’m a just an aesthete :joy:

I’m not sure if that’s legally acceptable. I don’t know Russian law, I can only say from a few country standpoints that if a website has access and allows pornographic content that the website needs to be “restricted” to 18+.
Not like I’m an expert on internet legality world wide though, so whatever happens, happens :joy:

I don’t want Rarible to be in any trouble, or any other NFT marketplaces. Pornhub got into hellfire for extremely inappropriate content being accepted with little verification processes, I can only imagine what NFTs could unintentionally bring in once pornography is accepted.
The website can barely handle the influx of users and support requests. I don’t think they’re quite equipped to handle questionable nsfw content.

Well, I’m a dinosaur and I sometimes cross the path of very very “hard” posts on instagram.
Even if a pornographic painting is anatomically perfect, I will always find it distasteful for one reason : it doesn’t tilt the same things in you.

The erotic nude (or non-érotic) will stimulate imagination and emotions. Nudes carry a powerful signification and can be applied to various emotions, such as revelation, inner self, loneliness etc.

Pornography will only tilt your pulsions, basic, primary, bestial pulsions. The goal isn’t the same. It searches a kind of projection of you in the scene so as to obtain one reaction: sexual excitation. It’s far more limited and well… not really so diversified as erotic or non-erotic nude.

And I love beautiful things for sure. I’m an aesthete too.

And that one is awesome; it totally delineates the line between art and porn.

I came across one the other day that so looked like a still pulled from Evil Angel and there was nothing much going on in the way of post-processing either. I’m like, why would you even waste your time and dollars on that?

That’s very well said :clap:

Yeah that’s right… they’re already in a difficult position. Maybe this is something that can be considered in a second time, when (hopefully) this NFT phenomenon will stabilize and thrive in a more sustainable way

This is a very good point.
For example if you do a masterpiece closeup photography of a phallus?
All the retouching, all the correct lights, position, etc. and if it’s truly a masterpiece it slips into the Art section, but then it’s still in a way porn and Art somehow can not overpower porn in this battle. So this artwork wont be suitable for under 18, which is obvious, but still it’s not pornography, which is obvious too.
I’ve been struggling to figure out what and where is the line for these things.
Maybe the division between 18+ and under 18 is wrong.
Maybe the world needs some conditional under 18 and conditional over 18?
But then even if you categorize something as suitable for under 18 because it’s the above art masterpiece - not a pornography, then it can still probably, somehow affect the individual in a way that is not appropriate.
But then every one of us was also 13, right? And I’m pretty sure that everyone knows that teenagers actually have access to internet and we all can guess what’s among the first things they google. (for parents check the browser’s history or install keyloggers on the pc)
So I just don’t know how nudity can be categorized and I guess I will not be doing that here.

Yeah, 18 is just a number “art” and “porn” are just words, they’re not defined by a line and they vary depending on the person watching. Ideally, in order to respect every one, a site should analise all the users and ask them which kind of content they find disturbing.
That’s not possible, so the only way is to work with arbitrary definitions such as “porn” “art” and 18+
I just hope the guy that takes this decision is a smart one :joy:

I really thought that porn category was just meaning for 18 plus art…

I was looking for this information, too. The TOS are more then vague: no “indecent” stuff allowed. Well, at certain times in history it was indecent to show a lower leg :smile: At other times it was perfectly fine to walk around with the tiddies out :slight_smile:

It would be nice to write it a bit clearer in the terms. Or at least remove highly subjective rules like “indecent”.

Nude life drawings (and nude photography) are included in every art education anyways. I’m already bitter, that I had to censor my drawings for my portfolio on tumblr and was planning to mint them uncensored…

The art vs porn discussion is always quite interesting. I mean, just look at any museum: Nude statues, nude paintings, paleolithic dildos… Or stuff that was once pure porn, like some Roman mosaics or vintage nude photography, which can nowadays be classified as “art”…

Personally, I always prefer a filter / opt-in solution. Where the creator can mark a work as “nsfw”, it will be displayed blurred by default, the user can click on it to de-blur. No other penalties for the creator (e.g. please don’t hide nsfw from searches etc).

Hi and welcome among us, @AnTi-ArT,

sure other times other customs, but for now, artistic nude is not censored on Rarible. Only real porn (in the extensive definition of it which includes gore etc.) is not permitted.

Many porn art form Roman era are not displayed publicly, you have to search to find them (except for Pompeii).
